A member asked:

I have neck pain, stiffness , burning sensation on right side of neck and back of head. i have lupus and i take immunosuppressant. mom has shingles.

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Doubt infection: I doubt this is an infection. Shingles is caused by the chickenpox virus and if you've had chickenpox or had a chicken vaccination your risk of chickenpox is low. Shingles can occur at any age but especially is more common as we age.
